The IAMP Statement on the Health Co-benefits of Policies to Tackle Climate Change

Certain actions to cut greenhouse gas emissions and thus reduce climate change can also directly improve human health, according to a statement from IAMP, a global network of the world's medical academies, and partner organization of IAP ...

These health benefits could partly offset the costs of tackling climate change and challenge the belief that policies to tackle climate change will invariably be socially and economically demanding.

IAMP urges global political leaders around the world to take account of the health benefits of such mitigation strategies ahead of their meeting this week in Cancun, Mexico.
